Information for Patients with Off Island Physicians  Patient files (electronic and paper) are kept in confidence by their physician and are not accessible to the Cortes Health Centre.  Clinics owned and operated by Island Health may share patient information but the Cortes Health Centre is not one of those Island Health clinics. Lab work is available to all Cortes Island residents whether or not they are patients of the Cortes Health Centre.  If you have received a lab requisition from your off island physician please confirm we are able to perform the lab work by bringing your lab requisition to the Health Centre for review, when you make your appointment.  We will schedule lab work for you on first come first serve basis as we do with all our patients. Lab results are sent to your physician.  When inquiring about your results, please contact your physician.
